The development of moral thought: Review and evaluation of Kohlberg's approach

Evaluates the evidence supporting L. Kohlberg's theory on the development of moral thought. A systematic review of the literature suggests that there are several conceptual and methodological problems with the approach. The problems include the derivation, administration, and scoring of the model's primary measurement device (Moral Judgment Scale); the lack of evidence for both the reliability and validity of that device; and the absence of direct evidence for the basic assumptions of the theory. It is concluded that the empirical utility of the model has yet to be demonstrated. (40 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
